Mini Haul

Today I popped out for a bit and didn't come home empty handed.... as per usual *sigh* :)


As you can see from my previous post, my hair has gone REALLY light, so I picked up Clairol prefect ten in shade 5A, Medium ash brown. L'oreal preference in ultra lightening ash brown.


I needed a good exfoliator, so I decided to get Origins "get down" a deep pore clay cleaner that can be used as a cleanser or face mask. It has tiny particles in it to really deep clean down into the pores. I love this stuff, I have used it before... it makes my skin feel really really soft! However, at £14.68 it doesn't come cheap, but on the up side, it should last me a long time as I will only use it once or twice a week.


I also couldn't resist this Eyeko cream bronzer, you can see from my previous posts that I'm loving the anti powder routine, so this will be a perfect addition to spruce up my make up collection. I have cream bronzers but they are in the form of a stick or squashed flat. This formula as you can see is very easily blendable. Thanks Gemma & Laura who brought this to my attention. omg imagine putting this on your legs?



Swatch. FYI, I didn't blend this out properly, as you can see it's very pigmented, a little goes a long way! It has some shimmer to it, and reminds me of a liquid form of glam tan!
Let me know your thoughts on dying my hair :) whether you use get down or if your loving eyeko cream bronzer or highlighter.

Im all for home dying - I think once you find a shade that you like it can save you a fortune.
I dye my hair with the perfect 10 but use the darkest black one. It takes aout 10 mins to put it on :)

I have that bronze moisturizer.. so far no break-outs which is good! However I never wore it out the house, I just put it on at home to 'try it out' about 4 times!

Tali said...

I like your hair light.. Go for the change if you really feel you need it but I really think light brightens up the face.

Ask your Mum..they always give impartial advice!

I like your hair light too. Nice for summer. I would save the darker colour for Autumn/Winter. I'm too chicken to dye my own and always go to the salon!!

i love dark hair on almost everyone, i think it will look great!

Jesse said...

I recently got the Eyeko cream aswell and it's so smooth! But I find it alittle too shimmery and sometimes it goes on streaky.

I think you would LOVE Chanel Bronze Universel. You should check it out, it's £27 but so worth it :)

Belle Du Jour said...

Eyeko looks so fun, is this only avail in the UK? I use the Chanel Universal Bronzer and I love it, i think you might like this too, its more of a hard cream then a gel!

Aleksis said...

When my hair was dark I was using Natural Insticts and it made my hair INSANELY soft/shiney...If I were you I'd get something like that because it's semi permanent (less damage) it's also even cheaper! It's also good because it'll fade a little and it won't be so dark, but I love you with any color!

khmari123 said...

i love your light too...i don't think you should go dark

bubblegarm said...

@belledujour I might have to get the chanel bronze universal too but right now finances are v tight!!! Maybe later :)

@khamari awww but im prepared for it now :) it will get lighter as I wash it anyway, if I really hate it then I can always dye it back!! x

Yelena said...

Hi gorgeous!! I think you should do whatever your heart desires with your hair. If you want to go dark, go dark. With your features it will look so exotic! I am actually going through a similar phase. My hair has been fairly light for years now and I am curious how I'd look with dark color.

I am excited that you bought the Eyeko bronzer! I bet it will look great! I wish they sold it in the US :-/

I read an article on www.cosmeticdatabase.com that this product is not only horrible to your skin but health as well. For more information I provided the link http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/product.php?prod_id=65971.
